WARRNAMBOOL police have arrested a young man charged with attempted armed robbery, who had allegedly skipped bail.

Last Friday Tyler Parker, 19, of Bolden Avenue, successfully applied for bail in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court after being charged with attempted armed robbery, assault and making a threat to kill.

He allegedly pulled a knife on two 15-year-olds at football training during a four-day ice bender and demanded one hand over his wallet and mobile phone.

Police arrested Mr Parker on Monday night and opposed bail, saying he was an unacceptable risk of reoffending or breaching bail conditions.

Magistrate John Lesser said although there was a considerable risk of Mr Parker reoffending, that could be mitigated by strict bail conditions.

Mr Parker was bailed with the conditions he report to police twice a week, live at a Grey Street address in Terang, obey a 7pm to 7am curfew, not associate with a co-accused, obey the instructions of treating professionals and not come within 15 kilometres of Warrnambool except with his aunt to attend court, solicitors or treating professionals.

However, on Saturday morning his aunt discovered Mr Parker was missing from her Terang home.

Yesterday Detective Senior Constable Elissa Smith, of the Warrnambool police crime investigation unit, successfully applied in court for Mr Parker's bail to be revoked.

Mr Parker was arrested at an east Warrnambool home at 6.30pm on Monday.

He will be held in custody until his next court date on September 15.
